The opening view of this Panorama which was taken from Hen Island in the Thimble Islands is facing towards the South West which shows East Stooping Bush Island (185°) and Johnson Island (195°) to the left of your screen and Money Island (246°) to the right. If we pan clockwise towards the West we can see High Island (264°) in the distance. Continuing clockwise we see West Crib Island (285°) then East Crib Island (305°), then we come upon Cut In Two Island (351°) in the distance. As we pan past True North we see Davis Island (018°). Next, in the distance, we pass Bear Island (50°), then Smith Island (65°) and due East we come to Wayland Island (90°). Continuing around to the South East, off in the distance (about 5.5 miles) we see Faulkner Island (117°). Finally, just before we arrive back to Stooping Bush Island we see a rock sitting above water named Marine Island (166°).
The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
